You mean the black invention of the traffic light myth? Read all about it here along with all the other black invention myths:

Black Invention Myths



Traffic light: Invented by Garrett A. Morgan in 1923? No!
The first known traffic signal appeared in London in 1868 near the Houses of Parliament. Designed by JP Knight, it featured two semaphore arms and two gas lamps. The earliest electric traffic lights include Lester Wire's two-color version set up in Salt Lake City circa 1912, James Hoge's system (US patent #1,251,666) installed in Cleveland by the American Traffic Signal Company in 1914, and William Potts' 4-way red-yellow-green lights introduced in Detroit beginning in 1920. New York City traffic towers began flashing three-color signals also in 1920.

Garrett Morgan's cross-shaped, crank-operated semaphore was not among the first half-hundred patented traffic signals, nor was it "automatic" as is sometimes claimed, nor did it play any part in the evolution of the modern traffic light.

Let me ask you, will it be alright for some of us from European descent to mix with other races? Your honest opinion please.

No, I don't believe in miscegenation. Because when you do, you destroy the true diversity of races. That's why there are white women for white men, asian women for asians, etc.

Genetically speaking aside, studies have shown that mixed race relationships seldom work out because of the vast differences in culture, beliefs etc.

Also studies have shown that the offspring of race mixers often have deep mental and emotional problems stemming from not being felt accepted by either side of the parents. Plus they have major idenity issues. Simply put, when you race mix you loose.

BTW, notice he was brought up the mother's side. His black daddy walked out on him and the mother was a raging hippie. Also notice that all he seems to talk about is his mixed background so clearly it does have a negative impact on him.

Good Lord Man, do you realize what you are saying, we are about to put a hippie's kid in the WH. This is just too much, first they tell us he is Black and now was raised by a Hippie?

CLK Ops, how do we save America from itself?

first, if you are trying to say "lose" .. as in not win? your spelling is incorrect.
loose.. is not tight. ok?

next.
I actually can't believe that you think intermarriage is somehow flawed and creates a substandard human..

I'm so awestruck by your notion that I don't even have a comeback.

I'll have to consult the KKK for advice.

1) Your first statement when broken down is a 100% mistake. True Diversity of one race. If its only one race then its not diversified in the first place. The only way to diversify a race is by mixing differences into, thus making it diversified.

With that being said the only way to destroy a diversified anything is to divide. You do this with separation. Equality does not destroy a race, separation of it brakes the hearts and souls of all races. Racism in itself is only one form of hate, but not hate for another race its hatred for not being like the other race or wishing one can be that different. You can only be upset about something you have no idea about and are to afraid to learn, thus generating anger. Since you lack knowledge of this anger you blame something else on it, for instance race. This in itself is why you would be called ignorant. Face your personal fears and you'll feel a lot better.


2) You can study all you want and read all you want but until you eat the food and talk the talk your knowledge on the subject matter is limited to an academic one, and not of a pure understanding. You obviously have distance your self from any kind of real formal education on race relations and by doing so can only give your opinion on the matter from a safe place in your conscious. This place in your conscious is only built up of fear and nothing more. You have totally surrounded your self in a wall of fear and you choose to be very comfortable in this room.

If it was left up to people like you many luxuries we enjoy from food, education, financial establishment and a greater understanding of the world would not be had. We would be a feeble world population. If it where for people like you we would not be able to learn from each other, help each other and support one another around the world. I have had the greatest honor by dating outside and inside my race. People like you are one sided like a sticker but don't last in a world ready for chance.

When you speak of Obama, you speak on him as an exception, I say he is exceptional. There is flaw to be found in all races across the globe, yet to continue to stick on one flaw is flawed thinking, which now you have proven your weaknesses. I know there is no changing your mind and millions of others like yourself. Its people like you that will never except anything a Black Person can do for this country even up to fighting its wars. Its a sad day when we come across people like you, but I have succeeded on many levels despite having to work with, work around and work above your way of thinking. I say congratulations to the mix couples I know that are still married ever since the 50's and 60's despite opposition from people like you.

No, this explains why Europe has an advanced civilization compared to other parts of the world.

It is a very difficult book to read, so I'll paraphrase it for you - due to tremendous advantages in geography, European civilization was able to feed itself far better than other regions of the world. Not just crops, but also meat. This meant that European civilization was able to diversify into a specialist economy instead of everyone being a hunter/gatherer striving for their next 500 calories. This drove technological advancement, education and also allowed for the maintenance of standing armies. Which pretty much allowed Europeans (and their descendants) to fuck up the world for the last 500 years or so.

I don't think "white people" invented the wheel, either. But you probably think that Jesus had blonde hair and blue eyes too.
